THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS-EVERYONE HAS A SPECIAL TALENT

The 2014 Special Olympics USA Games will be held from June 14-21 in Princeton,NJ.
The Olympic Torch has arrived to Newark NJ,just in time for the Opening Ceremony on Sunday.
Founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver,it is the largest sports organization in the world for people with intellectual disabilities.
The Special Olympics is a movement of sports training and athletic competition for those that have intellectual disabilities. Shriver believed that people with intellectual disabilities deserve the same opportunities and experiences as others.
No matter what the disability, a person still has a talent, a skill, and a gift given to him or her by God to share with the world when encouraged doing so.
 Using sports as a display of abilities brings about respect, acceptance and inclusion. Persons with disabilities benefit by seeing in themselves that they too have talents and it helps them to feel better about themselves. It also serves as a teaching tool to those who may have thought that disabled people were useless until they were afforded the opportunities to witness their grand performances.
But in the Christian Olympics, there are no differences between those that are disabled and those that are not.We are all in one big competition together.

THE CHRISTIAN OLYMPICS: Today-The Anniversary of the Christian Olympics

THE CHRISTIAN OLYMPICS: Today-The Anniversary of the Christian Olympics

Today-The Anniversary of the Christian Olympics

The very first Olympic Game,known as the Ancient Olympics,began about 776 B.C. in Olympia, Greece.The Olympic Games were held every four years which is known as an Olympiad.The Games continued until it ended about 393 A.D.You can find many references of the these games in the New Testament of the Holy Bible.But did you know that there are references to these games in the Old Testament as well.
The Modern Olympic Games began in the summer of 1896 in Athens,Greece.And the Winter Olympics were added in 1924.In 1994 the Summer and Winter Olympics were no longer held in the same year,they were separated so that they could be two years apart.
A flame of fire was always lit when the Games began,but the Torch Relay was something that was added to the Modern Olympics.
Today, June 8,2014, is the Anniversary of the Christian Olympics. The Christian Olympics began with the fire that symbolized the Holy Spirit's coming. which started in Jerusalem over 2000 years ago on the Day of Pentecost(Acts 2).
And just as the athletes in the Olympics come from all over the world to one location for the Olympic Games, there was another large  gathering on the Day of Pentecost.Men out of every nation under heaven were gathered together in one place for the Opening Ceremony of the Christian Olympics.

SPIRITUAL FITNESS


Fall is now here and it is a most beautiful season. With the Fall flowers blooming, and the leaves changing colors and falling from the trees. Another sign that it is fall is that summer is over and everyone is back to their normal routine. For some it is the beginning of a new year for the start of school and for others it is back to work.   
This fall many of the topics for newspapers, magazines, talk radio, and other media has to do with losing weight, eating healthy, and exercising. These topics bring loads of advertisements for such things as diet books, diet foods and loads of weight loss products, whole food products, along with exercising equipment to keep in shape.
All of this to help us to live and eat healthier so that we can be physically fit.
 But what about our spiritual fitness? We are not just physical beings.We are spiritual  beings as well and need to address the needs of our spiritual nature.
To be spiritually fit we have to feed our spiritual nature with spiritual food and do spiritual exercises. Spiritual fitness also involves spiritual training and spiritual discipline.
As we take care of the physical, let us not forget the spiritual as well. One of our spiritual exercises is walking by faith. Unlike physical walking where we can see where we are going, spiritual walking is by faith and not by sight.(2 Cor.5:7). Walking by faith is believing God’s promises will be fulfilled even when we can’t see them. With the gloomy situation that the world is in today, we need spiritual fitness more now then we ever did before. Having a healthy spiritual life will also help us with our physical fitness.  
My book: The Christian Olympics: Going for the Gold Crowns, can help you to become spiritually fit. You will discover other spiritual exercises that are beneficial to your spiritual life. In times like these we cannot survive without spiritual fitness. Get On Your Mark, Get Set, And LET’S GET SPIRITUALLY FIT this Fall !!!
